Pours a murky brown into Duvel tulip glass. Aroma is of caramel, roasted nuts and citrus. Flavor is a lemon zesty and slightly soapy. A nutty and earthy malt profile. A sharp hit of cascade hops on the back of the throat. Really a full flavored beer that is quite complex for its lower abv.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
1 American Pint Can @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a murky amber with off-white head. A swirling concoction of burnt toffee, caramel & vanilla in the taste with a slight nuttiness. Very enticing blend indeed.

joejames (187) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours slightly hazy amber, one finger head, some lacing. Aroma coffee and roasted malts. Taste is malty medium sweet with just a slight bitterness. Light bodied, highly carbonated, thin mouth feel. Finishes malty sweet with notes of coffee, caramel, toasted malt, bitter herbs and flowers. Expected this one to be better.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades fairly quickly leveling a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is quite strong of a caramel and lightly toasted smell. Along with these aromas comes some smells of a light bready and somewhat fruity smell with apricot and pear as well as a hint of nuttiness. Taste – The taste begins with a toasted malt flavor mixed with some lighter caramel and brown sugar sweetness. There is also a decent level of a more herbal and earthy hop upfront. These two hop flavors fade however, with them being replaced by more sweet caramel and brown sugar tastes. While much of the hop fades, other hops do end up taking their place, with a bit of a grassy hop joining the flavor profile. With a little bit of a fruity flavor of pear and plum joining the flavor at the end, one is left with a pleasant and somewhat smooth malty taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner and slightly more watery side with a carbonation level that is rather average. A little thicker of a body may have been slightly more appropriate for the caramel and brown sugar mixed with the toasted taste, but overall the feel was alright and did a decent job for the brews tastes. Overall – A rather easy drinking brew overall with a good flavor. Nothing too spectacular, but a very easy drinker and a good go to for beer drinkers of varying taste preferences.
